Graduation Message From Sheriff


Graduation season (and summer) is upon us – Message from the Sheriff

 

As the school year comes to an end and graduation approaches, we at the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office want to congratulate our graduating seniors and wish them all the best as they head out into the world. Some of our seniors may be preparing for college, others preparing for a career, and the rest still deciding. No matter where you are headed to in life, we want to say congratulations, good luck, and stay safe!

 

A reminder to our community: As students of all ages are being dismissed for the upcoming summer break, remember to be safe and drive cautiously, as children will be out playing, riding bikes and enjoying the summer weather.

 

Of course, summer weather usually means higher temperatures, so remember these tips to beat the heat:

 

  • Take frequent water breaks
  • Apply sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15
  • Never leave children or pets unattended in a vehicle
  • Seek medical attention immediately for any signs of heat-related illness

We would also like to remind everyone traveling in a vehicle to always wear your seat belt and never drink and drive. Seat belt use is a most effective way to protect people and reduce fatalities in motor vehicle crashes. Do not drink and drive – instead, call on a designated driver to get you home safely. Not only do you risk your life when you drive impaired, you are putting the other drivers you share the roadway with at risk, too.

 

While you are traveling our roadways, boating, camping, or fishing, please remember to practice safety at all times. Mind the speed limits and always be on the lookout for children at play and crossing the streets.

 

The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office hopes everyone has a great summer! Congratulations again to our graduates!

 

Sheriff Jimmy Harris
